Looking for Advice on Steering Bearing

My son is trying to replace the bearing on the lower steering column since the old one was destroyed. He has reached an impasse, he can't get past the small lip on the shelf. We don't think we can go from inside.

I told him I'd post on Jeep Forum for help. I have a video on YouTube, but since I haven't posted before? (Thought I did) I cannot post the link here. Write me and maybe someone else could post it for me?

Any tips or advice would be appreciated! No jeep lovers near us to ask for advice.

It's a 95 4 cylinder. New steering gear and some other new parts but nothing that should affected the diameter of the column.

It's fixed. He tried to pass up the bearing towards the firewall, but the raised grooves stop it from advancing.

Hard to see in your video but are you sure that you got all of the old bearing off. I just changed the same bearing on my 1994 YJ with tilt wheel a week or 2 ago but I did it when the column was out it's a little tight but just used a pair of channel locks and a hammer to knock the old bearing off and a large socket and hammer to put the new one on.

it's all in the FAQ.

I had to dremel a slot in the bearing race to get mine off

Bearing

I think all the original bearing was removed, but I'll have him check again.
We will also check out the link, thanks.

Do you think those ridges are actually the remmanents of a previous bearing?

That collar you see is part of the bearing. It is where the races sit.
I would use a dremmel to cut it.

This is what the bearing looks like. There are 4 parts. Your pic shows a couple of the old bearing parts still there.
